Example text

I learned that not everyone thought it was possible to link neuroscience and education. There was a claim that the gap between them was (is) too great. 4 As is often the case, the challenge triggered a reaction. Suddenly I found myself energized to get back to work on the mind thing. My reasons were simple. In my life as a biochemist, I had always focused on trying to find out how things work. How does DNA work? How do vitamins work? And I had never found that this questioning was a waste. I couldn’t predict the outcome or benefit, but as the work progressed, new connections and research directions always opened up.

So I slipped him my question: How do you figure the square root of 700? I will never forget my shock as I watched him struggle. His face turned slightly pink as he tried different angles, and as I saw what he was writing, my surprise increased. Even I knew the general way these problems were set up; I just didn’t know all the steps. But Henry didn’t seem to know even as much as I did. With everything he had learned in school, he could not solve my very real, compelling, and, I believed, easy problem (easy once you know how, that is)!

I am asking you to stay alert and watch for the places where I go beyond the known facts and end up putting my own theories and spin on things. I have tried to make these places obvious, but that is part of the challenge. First, I have to recognize them myself. I have tried to do that, often reminding you in the text, but also here. A lot of what you will read represents my theories. My translation. 1 THE NATURAL JOURNEY FROM BRAIN TO MIND Brief History and Overview It is [our] ancient and natural strength.
